    About this property

    • Located in one of Islington's most sought-after and historic locations, directly on Highbury Fields, this is a terrific example of a six-bedroom, grade-II listed Highbury Place house, built in 1776.

      The layout of the elegant and light-filled house is very well suited to family life, with the airy, double kitchen/dayroom on the ground floor enjoying open views across The Fields - as do all the rooms at the front of the house. The kitchen includes a 4-oven Aga and bespoke Plain English cabinets. A particular feature of this floor is the beautiful fireplace designed by Bank of England architect, Sir John Soane. The property benefits from extra width compared to several surrounding houses in the terrace.

      The lower ground floor can be utilised by the main house, or separated (with an internal door), to provide a very attractive one-bedroom flat with kitchen/boot room, cloakroom, office, bathroom and its own entrance. The wonderful first floor drawing room has three large windows across the full width of the house. On the same floor is a very well thought-through guest bedroom suite which includes a bathroom. The principal bedroom suite on the second floor is particularly impressive: at the front of the house, again with three windows overlooking the fields at tree level. The ensuite bathroom with free-standing bath and shower cubicle leads to a fitted dressing room with plenty of hanging and storage space. The top floor has two further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and generous storage space.

      The house retains a very warm and comfortable period feel with many traditional features, such as fireplaces, ceiling mouldings and working window shutters, yet has been arranged very well for modern and family use. When approached on foot through the park along Queen's Walk, the house is, uniquely, framed by the double row of London plane trees planted in the 19th century.

      A lovely, family-sized Georgian house in excellent condition in a sought-after location.

    Highbury Place has always been my favourite overlooking the Fields. This is a super family home with the kitchen/day room overlooking the greenery of Highbury Fields.
